Parkway northbound ramp to KY 800 to close again Thursday, Friday

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet again plans to close the northbound exit ramp from the Pennyrile Parkway to KY 800 at the Crofton Exit 23 interchange in northern Christian County on Thursday and Friday.

Officials say the closure is to allow the contractor to haul concrete to their paving operation along the northbound lanes of the parkway, according to a news release from the Transportation Cabinet.

The closure is expected to go from approximately 6 a.m. to about 4 p.m. each day.

There will be no marked detour, but message boards will alert northbound motorists on the Pennyrile who wish to connect to KY 800 to take Exit 11 at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bypass and then follow US 41 North as a self-detour.

There should be no other impact on two-way traffic that is running along the southbound lanes in this extended work zone and all other ramps at KY 800 will remain open.

Officials say this is the third of approximately five concrete pours required to construct a new concrete driving surface along the Pennyrile Parkway northbound lanes.
